Battle Through the Heavens - chapter-939
Horizon City sat in a mountain range called Tianqing, tens of thousands
of kilometres away from the ‘Black-Corner Region.’ Being the only
city which possessed a wormhole to the Central Plains within a radius of
thousands of kilometers, the flourishment of this Horizon City was second
With the speed of the Griffon, it required nearly half a month’s time
in order to reach the Tianqing Mountain Range from the ‘Black-Corner
Region.’ However, Xiao Yan’s group had no other choice in the face of
this matter. Xin Lan had yet to reach the Dou Wang class. Even if she had
barely reached it, it would have been difficult to support her flight all
the way to Horizon City. It was simpler to ride the Griffon rather than
travel a little bit and stop repeatedly even though this would exhaust an
even greater amount of time. However, once one got used to it, a few
days’ time was nothing.
During this flight, Xiao Yan increased his understanding of the Central
Plains from his chat with Xin Lan.
The Central Plains of the continent was extremely vast in size. Hence,
most of the large scale cities within the Central Plains had installed
so-called ‘Wormholes’ and using it to reduce the time one needed to
travel. The builders of these ‘Wormholes’ were mostly peak experts or
ancestors that belonged to the city. Hence, if the ancestor who built the
‘Wormhole’ belonged to a certain clan, this ‘Wormhole’ would also
belong to that clan. Of course, owning a public transport machine was
something that even an extremely strong clan did not dare randomly do by
themselves. Despite this, there were still a couple of clans who would do
such a foolish thing. After all, if one were to open it to the public,
the profit that a ‘Wormhole’ would bring ever year would reach an
extremely frightening number. Such a number was sufficient to support the
Hence, the appearance of every ‘Wormhole’ within the Central Plains
would attract the red eyes of a countless number of factions. However,
other than some powerful clans or sects, the remaining people could only
simply watch full of envy. After all, not everyone could invite an elite
Dou Zun to spend a great amount of effort to build a ‘Wormhole.’
Hence, the ‘Wormhole’ represented wealth and strength within the
Central Plains. Those clans able to own one were mostly renowned
factions. Of course, this was with the exception of some clans which were
enjoying what was left behind by their ancestors…
“The Central Plains is indeed different from other places. A wormhole.
Such a thing had never existed in the ‘Black-Corner Region’.” Xiao
Yan on the Griffon involuntarily smacked his mouth and laughed after
hearing Xin Lan talk about the Wormhole.
“Connecting two distant spatial points requires an extremely precise
control over spatial strength. It is extremely difficult for anyone other
than elite Dou Zuns to do it.” The Little Fairy Doctor nodded slightly.
Her tone contained some surprised.
“Wormholes are but one of the specialities of the Central Plains. Once
big brother Xiao Yan arrives there, you will be able to personally
experience them.” Xin Lan smiled as she spoke.
“Who are the strong factions within the Central Plains?” Xiao Yan
nodded his head. He hesitated for a moment before eventually asking. When
walking into that region, he should know who he could offend and who he
not afford to offend.
“The factions in the Central Plains are divided. I am only aware of
some of the human factions, and I don’t know much about the Magical
Beast Tribes or the other races.” Xin Yan mused for a moment before
speaking, “In the Central Plains, the human factions are roughly
divided into One Hall, One Tower, Two Sects, Three Valleys, Four
“One Hall, One Tower, Two Sects, Three Valleys, Four Pavilions? “
Xiao Yan slowly repeated these words in his mouth. He frowned slightly
and asked, “This one tower should refer to the Pill Tower, right?”
“Yes, the tower refers to the Pill Tower. As for the hall, it refers to
the ‘Hall of Souls’.” Xin Lan stared at Xiao Yan and softly spoke.
She had heard First Elder mention that Xiao Yan had quite the grudge with
the ‘Hall of Souls.’
“Hall of Souls?” These simple words instantly caused Xiao Yan’s
face to turn dark and cold. Sharp killing intent flashed out of his
“The ‘Hall of Souls’ is extremely mysterious in the Central Plains.
An ordinary person has difficulty meeting a member of the ‘Hall of
Souls.’ Forget about its headquarters, there are few people who even
know about some of their branches. Despite this, the ‘Hall of Souls’
is still able to be ranked side by side with the Pill Tower. This is
enough to tell just how frightening its hidden strength is.” Xin Lan
nodded. She paused for a moment before continuing, “Big brother Xiao
Yan, I know that you have quite the grudge with the ‘Hall of Souls.’
However, for your safety, I advise you to hold out and reach the point
where you can really contend against it. After all, even the Pill Tower
doesn’t wish to easily make contact with the ‘Hall of Souls.’ It
should be known that the three great heads of the Pill Hall are legendary
experts that could be ranked in the top ten even in the Central Plains.
Even though this is the case, the three great heads are extremely afraid
of the mysterious chief of the ‘Hall of Souls.’ According to some
rumors, the three great heads of the Pill Tower had once quietly
exchanged blows with the ‘Hall of Souls.’ No one has ever heard about
the results of the exchange.”
Xiao Yan quietly nodded in the face of Xin Lan’s suggestion. He inhaled
a deep breath of air and suppressed the killing intent in his heart.
Since the ‘Hall of Souls’ had such deep roots in the Central Plains,
he would sooner or later be able to follow their traces and pull all of
them out! No matter how strong they were, Xiao Yan would not display the
slightest hesitation or shrink back!
“What about the Two Sects, Three Valleys, Four Pavilions?” Xiao Yan
suppressed the churning thoughts within his heart, changed the topic, and
“The two sects are the Profound Sky Sect and the Flower Sect. These two
sects also possess an extremely great strength within the Central Plains.
The experts within their sects are as numerous as the clouds. Although
they can not be compared with the Pill Tower nor the ‘Hall of Souls,’
they are an existence that cannot be underestimated. The three valleys
are the Icy River Valley, Sound Valley, and Burning Flame Valley.”
“Burning Flame Valley?” The corner of Xiao Yan’s mouth twitched
involuntarily as he heard this somewhat familiar name. It was the only
faction that he knew which possessed a ‘Heavenly Flame.’ Moreover,
the Sky Fire Three Mysterious Change that he practiced was a secret from
“If I have the opportunity, I might head to this Burning Flame Valley
and try to see if I am able to obtain the final two changes. If I can, my
strength would greatly soar once again.” Xiao Yan’s eyes flickered as
he muttered in his heart.
With Xiao Yan’s current strength, he was undefeatable in the Dou Huang
class by just using the first change of the Sky Fire Three Mysterious
Change. If he obtained the other two changes, it was likely that he would
be able to face an elite Dou Zong head-on even without using the Angry
Buddha Lotus Flame.
Xin Lan was naturally unaware of the thoughts in Xiao Yan’s heart. When
she saw that there was something unusual in his expression, she thought
his expression was because the Demon Flame Valley also possessed a
‘Heavenly Flame.’ Immediately, she hurriedly reminded, “Big brother
Xiao Yan, the Burning Flame Valley’s Nine Dragon Lightning Flame has
long been perfectly sealed by them over the generations. Even if an
outsider managed to obtain it after much effort, it would be difficult
for him to use it as his own. Offending such a powerful faction for a
‘Heavenly Flame’ that could not used is not wise.”
Xiao Yan smiled and nodded. He said, “Relax, although I require
‘Heavenly Flames,’ it has not reached the point where I experience
such foolish thoughts.”
Xin Lan finally sighed in relief upon hearing this. She did not wish to
bring Xiao Yan to the Central Plains only to end up watching him get
himself into trouble for no reason. Her clan might possess some strength
within the Central Plains, but it was not to the extent where it could
treat a faction like the Burning Flame Valley as nothing.
“The four pavilions are the Falling Star Pavilion, Ten Thousand Sword
Pavilion, Yellow Spring Pavilion and the Wind Lightning Pavilion. Due to
their positions on the Central Plains, the coincidentally form a square
shape; therefore, it is called the Square Pavilion. Their strengths are
similar and quite strong. They could be considered the top even among the
top rate factions in the Central Plains. Try your best not to offend
these factions that I have mentioned in the Central Plains in the
future…” Xin Lan seriously reminded.
“Wind Lightning Pavilion?”
This other familiar name directly caused Xiao Yan’s expression to
become somewhat strange. He clearly remembered that the Three Thousand
Lightning Movement he practiced seemed to be a top ability technique of
this Wind Lightning Pavilion.
“Of course, these factions are only some of those with the biggest
reputation in the Central Plains. However, there are too many hidden
dragons and tigers in a place like the Central Plains. Some factions,
which seemed to be relatively unknown, might hide some ultimate expert
within it. Hence, it is best to be extremely careful when doing anything
in the Central Plains.” Xin Lan clapped her hand as she spoke.
“My knowledge regarding the non-human factions is extremely limited.
However, their strengths are extremely frightening. There is no lacking
of frightening factions which could contend with the ‘Hall of
Souls’.” Xin Lan bunched up her eyebrows when she spoke until this
point. She reminded, “Moreover, if you wish to kill any Magical Beast
in the Central Plains, it is best that you ascertain that there is no
tribe behind it. If there is, try your best to kill it without anyone
knowing. Otherwise, it is very easy to invite the vengeance of a Magical

Xiao Yan immediately wiped the cold perspiration off his forehead when he
heard these words. Wasn’t the Central Plains too mysterious? One
actually had to investigate the background of a Magical Beast before one
could kill it?
“Ha ha, of course, there is definitely no necessity to do this if it is
an ordinary Magical Beast. What I am referring to are those Magical
Beasts which can speak the human language and possess some intellect.
Moreover, there are also strong and weak Magical Beast tribes, and they
are disunited. With the exception of some frightening existences, nothing
will happen if you do things cleanly.” Xin Lan covered her mouth and
laughed when she saw Xiao Yan’s face.
Xiao Yan only sighed in relief when he heard this. He now possessed a
vague outline of the distribution of the factions in the Central Plains.
He immediately smiled. It seemed that the Central Plains would indeed be
an extremely exciting place. The number of experts there were as numerous
as the clouds and the factions were all jumbled together. Such a place
was suitable for him. The strong had their own paths. Only with repeated
tempering and battles would one be able to find the essence of fighting.
Such a life was what he wanted. At the very least, he did not feel the
slightest disappointment when he heard Xin Lan’s introduction.
Xin Lan’s face suddenly became joyful while Xiao Yan was praising the
region in his heart. She pointed at mountains that had suddenly protruded
from the ground and joyfully uttered, “Tianqing Mountain Range. Big
brother Xiao Yan, we have arrived!”
